We always pause when celebrity new moms like Amal Clooney, Ivanka Trump. former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer when they announce plans to get back to work weeks after delivering, not fully aware of how much of a challenge that could be.
Cardi B is the latest new mama to fall victim to this phenomenon.
She had previously stated that despite being set to give birth in July, she still planned to remain on Bruno Mars‘ “24K Magic” and to take her newborn with her.
As we could expect, the Bodak Yellow performer announced that she will no longer be joining Bruno’s tour.
“As of today I’ve decided I won’t be joining Bruno on tour this Fall,” the rapper wrote in a statement posted on Instagram Thursday night. “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
The Invasion of Privacy album creator only delivered her baby girl Kulture three weeks ago and explained to her fans and followers that she’s not ready to hit the road. Per her pediatrician’s advice, neither is her daughter.
“Not only am I just not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road,” she wrote.
The “I Like It” songstress has not hired a nanny and is not interested in being apart from her baby during her most formative first months.
“I hope you guys understand that this decision has been the hardest to make but I have to do what’s best for myself and my baby!” she finished off her post. “Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding.”
Cardi shares her daughter with husband Offset, who is a member of the trio rap group, The Migos rapper, along with Quavo and Takeoff. He’ll be making the bread and perhaps missing baby’s first moments as he is sticking with plans to join Drake this summer on his North American tour, “Aubrey and the Three Amigos,” which was rescheduled to address production issues.
